Heart repair gets new muscle

...e grown in a test tube or have migrated to injured hearts in study mice. The authors can't say why skeletal muscle would harbor cardiac stem cells, but for now, the Spoc cells provide a valuable tool for studying heart cell differentiation. And with time, they might prove an important resource for developi...

Researchers develop portable 'vein finder' for faster, more accurate injections

...he explains. "Similarly, because cardiac patients' hearts aren't pumping properly, their veins are hard to locate. It's also difficult to find veins in obese people and young children because their vessels are covered by layers of fat." In addition to speed, the vein finder's accuracy will make treatment e...

Potential heart benefit found in stem cells

...r eight weeks, the animals were euthanized and the hearts were removed to measure the left ventricle wall thickness and the density of the corresponding capillaries in four areas: the damaged or infarct area, the healthy myocardium (cardiac muscle), and in two parts of the border zone. As predicted, the...

Mice with glowing hearts shed light on how hearts develop

...researchers have genetically engineered mice whose hearts glow with a green light every time they beat. The development gives researchers insights into how hearts develop in living mouse embryos and could improve our understanding of irregular heartbeats, known a...

... block rhodopsin, and not by inflammation. "In the hearts of Chagas patients, we see scarring because there is a complex reaction that causes inflammation," he said. "But there are no such scars in the eyes of Chagas patients with reduced vision." "No one knew about the night blindness, so we don't know, ...

UT Southwestern researchers find gene mutation that leads to 'broken hearts'

...uthwestern scientists engineered fruit flies whose hearts glow by expressing a gene coding for green fluorescent protein specifically in the heart. "This fly with a glowing heart enables us to visualize the details of heart development with high resolution in living animals and to detect cardiac defects tha...

Healing the heart with bone marrow cells

... impaired and, 42 days after a heart attack, their hearts dilated to twice the size of the normal mouse heart. However, the heart function of the c-kit defective mice could be restored to normal by restoring the c-kit cells in their bone marrow, confirming the importance of these cells in repairing the hear...

3-D ultrasound scanner could guide robotic surgeries

...evice can produce actual 3-D images of the beating hearts in animals. The team has since demonstrated that the scanner also can be used to laparoscopically image other organs, including the spleen, liver and gall bladder. In the current study, the researchers used the scanner to identify coordinates den...

Cell wall of pneumonia bacteria can cause brain and heart damage

...fter eight hours, and cell wall was found in their hearts and brains. However, all of the Pafr-/- mice survived and almost no cell wall was found outside the blood stream. This suggests that PAFr is required for cell walls to escape the bloodstream and enter cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells) and neurons. ...
